roberts. we get straight to it starting on the agenda today. mitt romney desperate to lock up the front-runner title in the battle for the republican nomination and avoid falling flat with illinois voters. romney padded his delegate league with a win in puerto rico and is hoping to keep that going. >> i must bet the margin was just about as good. i need only one thing from you this morning, no, two. i need some pancakes and, number two, number two, i need you to go vote tomorrow. >> so we're not talking about pancakes over the weekend. romney made much use of the word economic lightweight. using that phrase to link both rick santorum and president obama. >> i believe itch the best chance and perhaps the only chance of actually replacing barack obama as the president of the united states. >> so not taking that one lying down. rick santorum hit back with these words on "morning joe." if i'm a lightweight, i agree, he's a heavyweight. is a big government heavyweight. that's what he said his record was. we need someone who understands that washington isn't the answer to our proble

romney across the northeast and rick santorum in oklahoma. the biggest surprise in all, ohio. santorum and romney have fought tooth and nail to emerge vicks you from the buckeye state. let's listen to the candidates as their final pitch goes out to voters. >> i do think we have a very real chance to win. but we're not here to get you to help callista and me. we're here to get you to help the country. >> this is not just about names on the ballot. this isn't an election about the course for america. we have to get rid of a failed president and get someone in there that understand this is economy and go to work to help the american people. >> the difference in this campaign is not just about governor romney being for obamacare, romneycare, advocating, as we've seen in the last week or two, it's one thing to be for it. it's another thing to not tell the truth to the people of this country about it. with e need a president and a nominee we can trust. >> let's bring in our super tuesday power panel. i love saying that. alicia menendez, chip salzman and richard wolf. i want to start with the

tuesday prize where the former house speaker finished in the top two. mitt romney talked about this fierce fight ahead. and he did that on cnbc "squawk box." take a listen. >> we've got the time and the resources and a plan to get all the delegates. we think that will get done before the convention, but one thing i can tell you for sure is, there's not going to be a brokered convention where some new person comes in and becomes a nominee. it's going to be one of the four people that are still running. >> so let's bring in our panel, liz, editor for associated press, nbc senior political editor mark murray, bob schrum, adviser to bob kerrey, and it is great to have you all here as we have our super tuesday hangovers together. liz, let's talk to you first. mitt romney pulls off the upset in ohio. "the cincinnati enquirer" nailed it saying "romney takes ohio barely," it's like the fight of the century, but if we take a look at this map, santorum taking nearly every ohio county, what does this do to the perception that he can't close the deal? >> well, i think what's happened is that rick sant
